1) My morning routine and walk to school were pretty relaxed this morning but, as I walked to and from school, I passed several poor parents shepherding screaming children to school and nursery*. I really hoped that, once they’d dropped the children off, they were able to go home, have a cup of tea, and recover from their fraught morning.
2) Upon opening her mail, M received a book sent to her by her NZ grandparents. She sat down to read it almost immediately, and was later heard exclaiming to K “Daddy, Daddy, I’ve read my new book and it’s fantastic!”. Thanks Nan and Grandad! 🙂
3) It’s too warm and A can’t get to sleep. He curls up on the sofa, drinks a cup of hot chocolate, all the time asking questions about life, the universe, and everything.
* This is not a normal occurence… we must be getting close to the end of term!
